Skip to comments.Jeff Flake claims Senate Republicans, not just Trump, are on trial
Posted on 12/21/2019 6:25:22 PM PST by Olog-hai
Former Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., is warning his former colleagues in the Senate that they, along with President Trump, will be on trial when the articles of impeachment eventually move from the House to the upper chamber.
President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong, Flake writes in an op-ed for The Washington Post Friday. [ ]
Flake urges Republicans to consider the evidence, but at the same time not to repeat House Republican assertions the president hasnt done anything wrong: He has.
The willingness of House Republicans to bend to the presidents will by attempting to shift blame with the promotion of bizarre and debunked conspiracy theories has been an appalling spectacle, Flake argues. It will have long-term ramifications for the country and the party, to say nothing of individual reputations.
He asks what Republicans would have done if President Barack Obama had engaged in the same behavior, in regards to Ukraine. I know the answer to that question with certainty, and so do you. You would have understood with striking clarity the threat it posed, and you would have known exactly what to do, he says.

There is a reason this RINO is no longer a Senator.
Here’s a quarter, Jeff, why don’t you call someone who gives a XXXX about what you think.
BS. The president made a phone call. That’s what presidents do. We have the transcripts and nothing wrong happened. I’m sick of generalities that “he did something wrong”. Well then, WHAT WAS IT? OUT WITH IT!
The Flake has already pled Guilty.
There’s one appalling spectacle who was properly neutered: Jeff Flake.
He admits its all about politics.
Of course the GOP House never impeached Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors.
And he knows in that case, the Democrats would have defended him to the hilt.
Flake has the nerve to say the Republican Party is on trial? What a maroon.
Why is he still talking?
Flake is true to his name. The answer to the question,
“what Republicans would have done if President Barack Obama had engaged in the same behavior, in regards to Ukraine.”
But, of course, that is precisely what Obama did as stated with clarion clarity by VP Biden. Which makes this Democrat claim a lie to cover their own criminal actions.
F off, irrelevant Flake.
Dad, what does overplaying your hand mean?
MSLSD’s favorite “Republican”.
he’s the guy with the crooked face, indicative of a genetic deficiency.
Most punchable face in politics.
3rd article like this posted within a few hours.
Republicans must do the right thing.
This is his or her defining moment.
He or she owes it to the country.
Blah blah blah.
We’ll read dozens and hundreds soon.
Just ignore them
Jeff Flake: “Ooh media, I want some attention! Look what I’ll say to get it!”
Amazing you should ask!
“Born in Snowflake, Arizona, Flake attended Brigham Young University, from which he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in international relations, and later his Master of Arts degree in political science. In the early 1980s, he became a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in South Africa, where he learned to speak Afrikaans. After returning to the United States, Flake served as Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute”
It was the Democrats who withheld aid to Ukraine! Yet they blame Trump for it!
